Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Glenn,



We forgot to write in your guest book about our experience, this letter is our expressions of thanks.



We came to celebrate our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. When we walked in the door we knew right away this was the right choice.



Your home offers a friendly atmosphere, great location, comfortable beds and a gorgeous deck to take in all of the beautiful surroundings.



Glenn, you are a wonderful host. Your caring manner was obvious from the time we first spoke to the time that we were driving home, when you called about a camera being left behind. Joyfully, we discovered the camera was yours.



The weather you ordered could not have been better!!



Thanks for everything!! We will be back.

The property was very well kept & clean when we arrived. The lay out was great for 2 small families.

We were excited to get away for the weekend & Glenn made it so easy by answering all of our questions quickly. The house was impressive & very clean. Another family of 3 went with us so we had a total of 7 people & 2 dogs in the house. We felt like we had plenty of room & the hot tub was nice to take advantage of after the kids went to bed. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils & pans we needed. We cooked on the grill one night & it was so easy to prepare & use. We all loved how close the beach was & how quiet the area was throughout the day & night. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely the best home! Fully stocked kitchen, and amenities like a luxury hotel. You just need food and toiletries. Loved the huge hot tub and the gas fire place. Had a great time right on the bay and beautiful views. Great restaurants nearby. Glenn is very responsive to every detail. Will definitely go back!

wedding anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Thank you for the warm welcome for our 30th wedding anniversary. During our stay we renewed our wedding vows on the deck with some beautiful sunshine. We were blessed with having our children and our twin grandchildren there to join us for the moment. The grandchildren were using the hallway to burn up their extra energy The beach was secluded and quiet. And during one of our walks we found a couple of live horse shoe crabs on their backs. We turned them back over and watched them go back to the ocean. The weather was great everyday sunshine even after the it rained a couple times in the morning. It was very relaxing. The house offered everything you needed and the stores and restaurants were a short drive from the house. And on the drive to town you could enjoy seeing the nice country side. Watching the oil tankers on the horizon it seemed like they never moved because they were so slow. They were filming a movie a couple houses down from the house based on the book "Delaware Shore" from Michaelangelo Rodriguez. It was interesting observing the work it took to make a movie. Thank you Glenn for you assistance and your quick response when having questions. Time went by too fast.

We are thinking of renting again in the future. And a big thanks for the flowers, oranges, and wine waiting for us when we arrived.
